Harvesting Technology - 2-row | SE 260

Off-set trailed, 2-row, 6 t bunker, for tractors from 110 HP

With the 2-row, off-set trailed SE 260 with 6 t bunker, GRIMME supplements its very successful SE 150-60 series and with that is able to enter the performance dimension of 2-row bunker-harvesters at an attractive price. The digging technology is based on a combination of the effective yet gently harvesting elements of the 2-row SE 150-60 and the optimized harvest flow of the 1-row SE 75-55. The machines compact design makes this machine highly manoeuvrable, which offers many benefits - especially at the headlands. The weight of 9.2 tonnes and the wide tyres up to 800 / 45 - 30.5 ensures low ground compaction. The SE 260 is suited for tractors from 110 HP onwards.

Universal separator

The separator type "UB" is a four-row finger scraper web and offers best separation properties on clod-rich soils with low stone content.

For sandy conditions

The separator type "NB", consisting of a hedgehog web and a double scraper roller, is suitable for light soils with low content of trash.

Real nonstop digging

The patented unloading bunker with reversing bunker floor and a capacity of 5.5 t enables non-stop harvesting with maximum crop protection. Compared to a conventional bunker, the digging capacity can be increased by up to 30 %.

Ideal crop transfer

A hydraulic bunker head lowering system is available for increased crop protection. This reduces the drop height of the crop by up to 80 cm and is therefore ideal for the use of transport vehicles with high side walls.

Variable use

Depending on the cultivation method (rows, beds, flat beds etc.), a wide range of different vegetables such as carrots, celery or red beet can also be harvested besides to potatoes.


  • Crop protection
    • Main webs with high-cam belt for optimum gentle crop handling
    • Reduced drop heights throughout the machine for a gentle crop transfer
    • Gentle but high capacity harvesting
    • Active running side bars at the second main web for crop transfer without friction at the side walls
    • Soft bunker floor, the bunker canvas is formed into pockets, which thus lead to a very good conveying effect.
    • Gentle handling of the crop at bunker emptying, crop chute available as an option for direct box filling and addtional gentle crop handling
  • High acreage performance and separating effect
    • Long first main web for effective sieving
    • Haulm separation with wide deviner web, separation from the tubers over the whole length of the deviner web, minimum drop height
    • 1st separator: Hedgehog web with triple scraper roller to separate soil and fine haulm
    • Separator type UB: Hedgehog web with Infinitely adjustable finger web, optimum setting of the trash separation
    • Separator type NB: Hedgehog web with double scraper roller to separate soil and fine haulm
    • Bunker filling optimization to increase the bunker capacity.
    • NonstopBunker: Increased performance by 20 % to 30 % due to a gentle, continuous overloading during digging process. The revolving bunker floor enables the use of the whole bunker volume
  • Chassis
    • Offset trailed machine: Tractors with wide wheels ensure an increased traction
  • Perfectly comfortable
    • Video system for improved monitoring of the main webs and separators, to enable an optimum machine operation
  • Due to the maintenance-free drive for the second main web and the deviner web, wear is minimized.
    • Speedtronic: The load dependant and fully automatic speed control system for the separators and picking web relieves the driver from manual tasks and increases output.
    • Visual Protect: Automatically switch-on of cameras, where a critical situation has been noticed (risk of a separator blockage e.g.), so the driver can react faster and prevent the blockage
    • Clean Control: For saving and "re-use" of specific harvest parameters
  • Versatility
    • The machine can be equipped with a windrow intake for the delayed, discontinuous ("two-phases") harvesting process.
    • Depending on the cultivation method (rows, beds, flat beds etc.), a wide range of different vegetables can also be harvested besides potatoes.
